Five questions to SANTI

Five questions to SANTI

SANTI was born 1992, lives and works in Nuremberg, Germany. He studies architecture in Munich. Creating collages, drawings and paintings already started earlier when he was in school and now has been developed to an abstract style of artworks. It’s driven by using bold colors in different techniques mostly painted on the floor. Since when do you paint and what are your favorite motives?I’ve started painting, sketching and drawing earlier when I was in school already. Developing a unique style has been happening for a few years now. I always like to choose bold colors and work with them on paintings mostly. 

When you create a new work, how do you proceed? What comes first?

I sometimes do sketches first to see what kind of color I want to bring together and where I want to place it. Then I put the canvas on the floor, listening to music I like and start painting. From what do you get your motivation?

I love to work with colors and to see the process of a painting until it’s finished and can leave its way into the world. 

Your life without art would be...

... not satisfying and not fulfilling.What is the best art place in your city at the moment?

For me it’s the city itself. You can find street art, installations or old sculptures. Also buildings may be artsy for my taste and I’m inspired by the enormous diversity you can see just by walking through. Learn more about the artist:
